Summer Training Schedule

The Bridge to Career in Human Service Program (B2C) offers a transitional summer training program to support students in their adjustment to living in College Station including independent living and transportation, as well as help them acclimate to the college culture, schedule, classes and instruction.

 

Housing for Summer Training

All students will stay in a dormitory housing on the Texas A&M University campus during the B2C summer training program. Students will move in during the second week of July and the students will have a fellow B2C student as a roommate in their fully furnished rooms.

 

Meals during Summer Training

A dining card will be provided to students. The dining card allows the students to eat three meals a day at a campus dining hall or at the MSC.

 

Summer Training Schedule - 2016

Students will be in class for an average of 7 hours a day from about 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m with a lunch break in between the morning and afternoon sessions. Training needs will be determined by pre-assessments and individually as identified in a pre-training wrap-around meeting and as observed in any training or community experience. The morning sessions include the whole cohort receiving training identified as useful for all of the students. The afternoon sessions will take place in small groups or individually and will include skills identified as important for the student(s) in each small group. Please see the sample schedule below.
